Laser Hair Removal Presentation
Laser Hair Removal – How it works • The laser emits a gentle beam of light which is absorbed only by the hair follicle (leaving the skin unharmed). This light energy is transformed to heat which destroys the hair follicle permanently. That’s really all there is to it. • This is called ‘Selective Photothermolysis’.
Laser Hair Removal – How it works • Unfortunately …… there are hundreds of thousands of hair follicles in any body area & • Hair grows in cycles (2 immature and 1 mature stages). Hair follicle can only be destroyed in the mature stage and at any given time only 10-20% of hairs are in the mature stage. • Therefore it requires multiple sessions.
Laser Hair Removal Unwanted hair With laser treatment Hair shaft and follicles are disabled
What to expect (benefits) – • Expect about 80-90% hair reduction in • 6 Treatment done over 9 to 15 months period. This is considered success. • Each session takes from 5 min. to 1 hour, depending on the body area. • The Interval between treatments varies; 6,8 or 10 weeks (Head, Torso or Lower Body respectively)
What to expect (benefits) – • Generally speaking, after your 6 sessions, you should be HAIR FREE & won’t have to shave again ever! • You may still have a stray hair here or there.
PAIN • The procedure should not be painful. Expect pain at 2 to 3 level on a scale of 10. 1 being the least and 10 being the worst pain you ever had. • Most people say it feels like a snap of a rubber band or a warm heating sensation. • Any pain more than level 4 requires reevaluation.
TANNING • NO TANNING!! • Tanning changes the color of the skin causing it to absorb the laser light intended for the hair follicle thus decreasing efficacy and increasing risk of burns • Avoid tanning 4 weeks before and 2 weeks after the treatment
Why Results Vary • The 3 main reasons are • Skin Color – Light skin vs Dark skin • Hair Color – Black hair vs Blonde hair • Hair Type - Coarse hair vs peach fuzz • Several other factors are - age, sex, genetics, heredity, hormonal changes etc Therefore • RESULTS CANNOT BE GUARANTEED
Risks and Complications • It is generally safe but there are some risks involved. • These risks are minimal (our rate is less than 1%) but you need to be aware of these before undergoing this procedure.
Risks and Complications • The 3 main risks are • Burns • Scarring and • Discoloration (hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation) • ALL THESE CAN BE PERMANENT
Preventing Complications 2 things you can do to help us prevent these • NO TANNING – Artificial or Sun; while undergoing these procedures • Tell us about pain level during the treatment. If it hurts, we will stop and reassess. We can reschedule the treatment but why risk a burn?
SUMMARY • 80-90% Hair Reduction after 6 Sessions • RESULTS CANNOT BE GUARANTEED • 3 main risks involved, all of which can be PERMANENT, are – • Burns • Scarring • Discoloration • 2 Things you can do to prevent these • NO TANNING • Tell us about your PAIN level during treatment
FAQ’s • Q. What Do I Need To Do Before & After My Treatment? • Shave the areas to be treated for on the day of or 1 day prior to your treatment. • NO TANNING • Also avoid waxing, tweezing, or bleaching those areas 4 weeks before laser treatment. • After treatments – avoid sun exposure for a couple of days
FAQ’s • Q. Which are the most popular areas? • A. The top 3 areas are - In Women - Upper lip, Bikini, Legs. In Men: Chest-Abdomen, Back and Neck-line • Q. Does hair grow back thicker and fuller after I shave? • That’s a myth. Shaving does NOT make it grow back thicker and darker. Removing hair also will not make it grow back faster
FAQ’s • Q. Who Are The Best Candidates For Laser Hair Removal? • A. Light skin with dark coarse hair are the best candidates because laser is absorbed by the melanin pigment • However with newer technology and our protocols, we have successfully TREATED ALL SKIN COLORS AND ALL HAIR TYPES including Blonde and fine ‘peach fuzz’ hair and African-American patients as well as • The only hair that is not a good candidate is white colored hair
FAQ’s • Q. How Many Treatments Do I Need? • A. Generally 6, sometimes more. However, most of the time you can expect to see a 30-50% reduction in hair growth after just 3 treatments.
